I was adopted. I've known that I was adopted for my whole life...it was never a thing that my parents tried to hide from me. I was only three months old at the time of my adoption, so I don't remember a thing about it. I also have a brother and a sister, no blood relation to me, who were adopted by my parents as well. I've never been interested in meeting my birth parents...I didn't even ask to know anything about them until I was around 18. When I did ask, I found out that my birth mom was apparently a quadriplegic in an institution of some sort, and my birth father was never identified. I don't know how she got pregnant, but I have a very good guess. Sometimes I wish I had never found out about my birth parents...and I have never had any desire to make contact with my birth mother. Anyone else adopted? Post your experiences here, and whether you'd like to know or meet your birth parents. As well, let me know if you have ever felt like you weren't as close to your family as other friends, or even siblings, who weren't adopted? Ever wish you weren't adopted? Other adoptees I've met over the years have always had different opinions on this subject, so I'm always a bit curious. Anyone who wasn't adopted, go ahead and let me know how you think you would have handled being adopted as well. Also, for anybody to answer, would you ever consider adopting a child?
